Dr Oz, is, unfortunately, not a trustworthy source of weight loss or diet advice. He often jumps on the latest bandwagon without waiting for solid results, and holds some very fringe ideas about current science that are... unsettling, to say the least.

This is a very long (and eyeopening) piece about him and his philosophies:

RHIANNON
I'm with you. After reading the article if I get to a point that isn't working I may try it. It does look promising though.

I saw a q&a in the back of Clean eating magazine about this subject, and the study they cited is on the website Becky gave. It does show some promise, and I considered trying one bottle of the suppliment if I get frustrated with a plateau or something like that. But not going to make it a regular part of my daily ritual.

Thank you for the info and link. I will read it, but I decided I can do this without drugs of any kind.

It is considered preliminary research. Yes, there are some exciting and favorable results but too early to really recommend supplements, amounts, etc. If you want to see some of the research abstracts go to: pubmed.gov (type in green coffee bean extract in the search bar).

Thanks ladies,
I saw it awhile back on Dr Oz but ignored it. Then I heard a conversation in the store today about it. Dr Oz approved it but did say to make sure you read the label and he gave a list of what it should have in it because there are frauds out there. I have never used anything like that and don't think I will now. I'm doing okay on my own.

Save your money. The research is extremely preliminary at best, and the industry that sells them unregulated, so there's no guarantee you'd even be wasting your money on the real thing.

The only thing that'll get lighter's your wallet. Skip the shortcuts, get-thin-quick supplements and schemes, and go with what *works*

A placebo effect at best, is all one can expect from these.

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone has tried Green Coffee Supplements and what the results were?
Thanks
